Name        : slapi-nis
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 0.8.5
Release     : 2.fc10
URL         : http://slapi-nis.fedorahosted.org/
Summary     : NIS Server and Schema Compatibility plugins for Directory Server
Description :
This slapi-nis package contains two plugins which aim to ease the
transition of a network from NIS to LDAP.  The NIS Server plugin
(nisserver-plugin) allows the directory server itself to act as a NIS
server, and the Schema Compatibility plugin (schemacompat-plugin)
allows the directory server to provide modified views of data stored
in the directory.

Update Information:

This update to version 0.8.5 fixes bugs which kept the plugins from updating the
results which they presented to clients in some cases when the data which was
used to generate those results was changed, and a possible deadlock.

* Tue Dec  9 2008 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.8.5-2
- make the example nsslapd-pluginpath values the same on 32- and 64-bit
  systems, because we can depend on the directory server "knowing" which
  directory to search for the plugins
* Mon Dec  8 2008 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.8.5-1
- update to 0.8.5 to suppress duplicate values for attributes in the schema
  compatibility plugin
* Thu Dec  4 2008 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.8.4-1
- update to 0.8.4 to fix:
  - problems updating references, particularly those for %referred() (#474478)
  - inability to notice internal add/modify/modrdn/delete operations (really
    this time) (#474426)
* Wed Dec  3 2008 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.8.3-1
- update to 0.8.3 to also notice and reflect changes caused by internal
  add/modify/modrdn/delete operations
* Wed Nov 19 2008 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.8.2-1
- update to 0.8.2 to remove a redundant read lock in the schema-compat plugin
